Summer Torte by Marion Burros

1 stick butter, softened (I always use unsalted)
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour; sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
Pinch of salt
NOTE: I added 2 teaspoons vanilla Extract
Fruit of choice; sliced into wedges (I used about 7 plums. Peaches, nectarines, strawberries all work great and in combination)
I used Red Currants.
Cinnamon sugar for top

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and add sugar. Beat well. Add eggs and beat. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to batter. Mix. Spoon globs to greased 9 or 10 inch springform. Use a knife to spread batter to cover entire pan. Arrange fruit on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (amount depends on the sweetness of the fruit).
Bake for 45 min.
